Re: MG Astor Review

Hi BHPians,

I am planning to buy an Astor CVT soon and looking at two options which are very similar in price:
  1. Option 1: 2024 Sharp CVT which has Ventilated Seats, Wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto, Wireless Charger, Auto IRVM
  2. Option 2: Nov 2023 Savvy CVT with Red Interiors and ADAS L2 minus above 4 features.
Ventilated Seats and Auto IRVM is what is pulling me towards MY24 but Red Interiors + ADAS L2 makes sense from Safety perspective. I live in NCR.
Any suggestions?

What are the discounts being offered on both the models?

Oy Corporate discount on MY24 @15K approx. On MY23, Savvy - 90k+15k. Difference between both is around 20k after this.

I'm also looking for Astor MY 24 but with 1.3 Turbo engine. I would suggest press hard for MY23 model (how old is this?) if you want to save money. If not, MY24 is a no brainer. I believe there is a hike on the way.

I had gone for a TD in Jan'24, at the MG showroom at sector 1 Noida.
For MY2023 cars, discount of Rs. 1.25L was offered to me - before negotiations. I negotiated till Rs. 1.75L discount, before I dropped the plan for an Astor.

Heard from colleagues about discount being close to Rs. ~2L for MY2023 cars (model to model MG has cut prices by 1.25L {and changed the name of the variant} and dealers offering a discount of Rs 75K over that).

The availability of MY2023 stock would be sparse though.

From the dealer end, this was the number from which I was contacted on, after I expressed interest online.
+917017301661 : Sagar Dhyaki - Affable & helpful chap.

My understanding is that, this is the dealership number. Hence not masking the personal info.

Re: MG Astor Review

After a lot of deliberations, picked up 1.3 Turbo and quite impressed with the overall package.

Noticing a faint rattle at idle, like something is loose.
Checked the engine bay and underbody, couldn't find anything.

Noise appears to come from the gearbox/centre dashboard.

Any leads?

Check the Astor bot, it the most probable culprit. Try keeping a finger on it when you hear the rattling noise to see if it reduces to check.

Re: MG Astor Review

This bot is useless. They should make it more useful. Update it with more commands. Sometimes im connected on a bluetooth call and suddenly the bot starts saying, “Sorry I cant do it”

This is so irritating.

While wired to apple or android car play, the clicking any ac buttons brings the screen to ac panel and then i have to bring it back to home and then again go to apple or android car play. This is annoying.

Havent got onto terms with the perfect fan speed and cooling efficiency. Fan 1 is too low, Fan 2 is faster than expected and Fan 3 is too fast for longer usage. 23 degrees with Fan speed 2 looks fine but could have been tuned better. Continuously running on the ac in the city decreases the mileage to 6 or below in heavy traffic.

I can say the build quality is much better than my cousins creta.

The overall mileage on the ODU is around 12.5 to 13 while driving soft at a speed of around 50-60 on highways Although, it drastically reduces when driven in city. City mileage is around 7-8.

Personally, Not satisfied with the mileage as im coming from a verna diesel.

Experienced squeaky noise from the panoramic sun roof.

Suspension is good.

Overall they need to tune the car better for performance and efficiency
